Where to start, where to start...

I've always been fasinated European history. I've spent more than half my lifetime reading about it. Where's a good place to start in the histories of China, India, Japan, Khmer and other Asian powers?

Have you thought about visiting a museum and exposing yourself on the culture. Here in NYC we have the Asia Society: The leading force in forging closer ties between
Asia and the West through arts, education, policy and business outreach.

Asia Society Museum organizes groundbreaking exhibitions of both traditional and contemporary Asian and Asian American art
